Som Tam





Everybody now a days has become health conscious and wants to stay fit with the surrounding. Everyone likes to have some roughage or salad before their meal which is a part of their daily diet. The salads don't need to be something exotic and stuck to a particular recipe, it is just what is there, one should eat it. 
Here I have taken the tradition Thai Salad 'Som Tam' and given it my twist. 


Ingredients - 
Green Bell Peppers - 1 piece
Yellow Bell Pepper - 1 piece
Red Bell Pepper - 1 piece
Raw Mango - 1/2 piece
Cucumber - 1 piece
Onions (sliced) - 1 piece
Mint Leaves - handful 

For the Dressing - 
Olive Oil - 50 ml
Lemon Juice - 15 ml
Red Chillies (chopped) - 1/2 piece
Garlic (chopped) - 1 clove
Fish Sauce - 1 tbsp

Method - 
1. Take all the three bell peppers and cut them into juliennes.
2. Take the raw mango and cucumber using a peeler, take out thin strips and cut them finely using a knife into long strands, like spaghetti. 
3. Put all of them in a bowl and keep aside. 
For the Dressing - 
1. In a bowl, take the chopped garlic, red chillies, lemon juice, fish sauce and mix well. 
2. Pour the Olive Oil little at a time and keep whisking. 
3. Adjust the seasoning with salt.
To assemble - 
1. Take the vegetables, drizzle the dressing on top and mix well and serve. 
2. Do not dress the salad in advance to avoid it from getting soggy.
